What you'll do

CURRENTLY RATED THE #1 AIRBNB FOOD TASTING EXPERIENCE IN NEW YORK!!!

On this experience we will answer the question "what is a sandwich?" as we FEAST on three different interpretations of the sandwich. And don't worry, we'll eat them all INDOORS to help protect us from the cold weather - this is an ALL WEATHER experience.

Together we'll visit destinations that you will not find in a typical tourist guidebook as we eat our way through the history and evolution of the sandwich. Along the way we'll hear stories about the sandwiches we are eating and the people who are making them. We'll discover street art and we'll also learn how the people of the East Village have influenced the sandwich game in New York.

Come with an open mind, leave with a FULL stomach.

And if you would enjoy a beverage after the tour, or on another day during your NYC visit, join me on my BRAND NEW Airbnb Experience bar crawl "Pour One Out For NYC".

* Don't see a day/time that suits you? Ask me for a new time and I can try to accommodate.

Other things to note
Come with an empty stomach and an open mind!

Yes New York is cold in the winter, but we'll stay indoors as much as possible. Plus, warm sandwiches protect us from the cold. Please still dress appropriately for the weather though.

This tour is not ideal for gluten-free or vegetarians. Sorry!

We really enjoyed this experience. Ben was a fun & charming guide who knew a lot about the NYC food scene and gave great recommendations (and this is coming from two New Yorkers!) He was also super helpful in accommodating our dietary restrictions, which we greatly appreciated. We'd highly recommend!

This was a 10/10 tour. You can't flaw it any way you look at it - we got a really interesting historical journey through the East Village, eating our whole way through it. What else could you ask for in NYC. I didn't realise I had a passion for sandwiches until doing this tour, I found myself continuing the search for the perfect sandwich for the rest of our weekend in the City! Ben was super friendly and personable, funny and knowledgeable. Do the tour, it' great.

Danke Ben für die tolle Tour! Alle 3 Sandwiches waren wirklich etwas besonderes. Ben weiß sehr viel über die Geschichte des Viertels und man merkt ihm seine Begeisterung für Sandwiches sofort an. Ich kann die Tour jeden empfehlen!

My wife and I came on this tour as an anniversary adventure. We are born and raised in NY but wanted to experience NYC from a different lens. Ben was super knowledgeable about the history of Alphabet City and its amazing sandwiches. Loved this tour so much and would highly recommend it to tourists AND residents!
